Downgrading Twitter Tools

One of our Twitter Tools wasn’t working (Damn upgrading accidentally!)

If you’re one of those folks who has upgraded Twitter Tools beyond 1.1b1 and want to get it working again, here are the steps I’ve taken (consistently) to get it working.

Deactivate Twitter Tools:


Downgrade Twitter Tools with version 1.1b1 (size:69,478)

Upload twitter-tools.php into the /wp-content/plugins/twitter-tools directory

Drop your Database (wp_ak_twitter) – phpMyAdmin if you can

DROP TABLE `wp_ak_twitter`;

Activate Twitter Tools


Tweet a bit in the hopes it makes a difference (It won’t :))

And eventually, after an unknown period of time (perhaps tied to API calls) it will start working.

Tweets will then show up on your blog, and when you post entries to your blog, they will tweet on Twitter on your behalf.   Typically, once you’ve done this it should work within 1-2 hrs.

Disclaimer: This is for people who use Twitter Tools and it stops working after upgrading.  I’m not sure why, nor do I really care why, when it fulfills a specific purpose for me :)
